ABOUT AXIOM ASIA

Specializing in the Asian mid-market since 2006.

OUR APPROACH

ASIAN PRIVATE EQUITY FUND INVESTING

Axiom Asia primarily invests in mid-market, country-specific funds with proven track records and strategies. Our strong relationships in the region enable us to secure valuable allocations to access-constrained fund managers. We also selectively invest in highly capable, NextGen managers who are raising their first or second funds.

DIRECT INVESTING

Axiom Asia invests directly in top-performing companies in Asia alongside our managers. Our systematic co-investment program has allowed us to pivot capital and increase exposure into sectors or geographies that are promising. Given our deep network and successful track record in the Asian private equity market, we are a preferred partner for our managers and have proprietary access to strong direct deal flow.

SECONDARIES

Axiom Asia is an active buyer of in the Asian secondary market. We are viewed by managers as a professional, responsive and knowledgeable buyer of fund positions and direct secondaries. We are also a preferred partner in corporate spin-outs and fund restructurings. Our scale and familiarity with the markets enable us to price and close secondary transactions quickly and discreetly.

CORPORATE RESPONSIBILITY

We have a long-standing commitment to ESG and giving back to our community.

AXIOM’S ESG POLICY
